This report details the processes so far undertaken, the results ascertained from these pilot processes and the techniques used. The pilot, though not complete, is now at the stage where certain conclusions can be drawn from the progress made so far. This is also the point at which further progress requires certain decisions regarding format and techniques to be focused and validated. 1 The Journal Nature Nature, was first published in 1869 and has been a weekly science journal to the current day. The journal's objectives were stated in t...
